Adnan Oktar: A Turkish-Islamic Union will be formed under Turkish leadership, with the unification of the Turkic states and with the help of Turkish union, insha’Allah. THIS WILL BE WITH TURKISH LEADERSHIP, and we are already moving in that direction. The ideal thing in any case is for Turkey to be the leader. All countries will remain separate as states, but there will be a spiritual union, insha’Allah, like the European Union. Passports and visa requirements will be lifted, countries will be able to trade and do business with one another freely, and will be brothers. The first foundation for this, insha’Allah, will be laid with Azerbaijan. And with Syria from the Islamic countries. Azerbaijan is in any case both Turkish and Islamic. Syria is our Muslim brother. We will unite with Syria, insha’Allah. These will be the first steps … This has long since been a duty incumbent on Turkey. It has always assumed the effective leadership of the Turkish-Islamic world. IT MAKES THIS FELT EVERWHERE. IT ALWAYS MAKES ITS ROLE OF OLDER BROTHER FELT, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY. TURKEY BECOMES INVOLVED IN ALL KINDS OF DISAGREEMENTS. For example, Turkey got involved in the formation of the Caucasian Alliance. Turkey acts as intermediary in the event of disputes between other countries. Turkey’s leadership is evident, whether it be the natural gas pipeline project, the oil pipeline project, or others. Turkey is already effectively doing this with no official statement having been made. And this is continuing and growing.
